I used to live right across the street from Henry's. Now we go back every year to celebrate Groundhog Day. The food is always fantastic, and the salad bar is one of the best in the area.

This is one of the most hidden treasures in Allentown. Excellent food and prices. Very quaint and relaxed atmosphere. Early bird specials are extremely wonderful buys. If you want true value for your money this is the place to go!

We have been going there for years for my birthday but last night was not what I expected.

Had heard rave reviews from the locals but were very disappointed. Food was uninspired and way overpriced. Salad bar no better than a truck stop. Nothing special. Guess we are spoiled by Lobster House at Cape May which sets the bar. Won't be going back to Henry's

We visited Henry's with friends from out of town and they loved it. Great seafood, tasty with perfect portions. Decor is dark wood paneled and the exterior is blue.
